Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Diana Gabaldon enchanted scores of fans with Outlander, her electrifying historical saga set in 18th-century Scotland. Now the sequel sweeps listeners back into the past as Claire relates more of her perilous sojourn there with her Scottish warrior husband, James Fraser. Twenty years after her strange journey back in time, Claire has returned to Scotland with her daughter, determined to share with her the secret she has harbored since her time travel. Still longing to know the fate of her beloved warrior, she recounts the story of her stay with him in the intrigue-ridden court of Charles Stuart and their attempt to avert the doomed Highlands uprising at Culloden. As her story unfolds, it reveals implications more far-reaching than even Claire could have guessed.

Narrator Davina Porter's gift for expression captures the history and flavor of a harsh place and time, and gives it the polish of a warm and engaging love story.

    "Dragonfly in Amber"

    Loved the basic story. Didnt quite like the beginning but overall liked the book. I was expecting to see better flow from last book between stories. Good narrator with all the voices and changes.

    "Great story. Great narrator."

    Started reading this because of the TV Outlander series. Consequently, I knew the story would be compelling. I knew Davina Porter would be good; she always is. I did not know that the writing would be sometimes beautiful. It really was.

    "Loved it!!!"

    I love how the story continues! 😆 There is a bit of a twist in several parts of the story. I am looking forward to starting the 3rd book here in a few moments. I listen as I work on my art, very relaxing. I have gotten used to listening to the narrator's voice and she does a wonderful job.

    "Slow but necessary"

    The beginning of the story really had me thrown considering where the last book left off. I encourage you to power through it. The early middle part of the story took me a bit to get through, but it was necessary for the continuation of the story. The later parts of the book had me entertained and eager for me. Davina once again does a fantastic job of helping you envision who is speaking before saying who it is. Looking forward to the 3rd book.
